Abe Lincoln: His Wit and Wisdom from A-Z By Alan Schroeder


Back of Book

Abe Lincoln is known for his many memorable adages. As the sixteenth president he needed all the wisdom he could muster to guide the country through the Civil War, preserve the union, and end slavery. This nontraditional tribute to the president who brought the homespun humor of his humble beginnings to the White House uses the alphabet to organize a wealth of information about his life and accomplishments.

My Review:

I got this book from scholastic and enjoyed sharing it with my class. It is an excellent overview of the life of President Lincoln.  Each letter has a short paragraph about a piece of Lincolns life. It made it very easy to break up this book and read a few paragraphs every day. Some of the material is a bit grown up for younger children. I skipped parts about the Civil War because it was a little too deep for my five year old’s to hear. Overall I say this is a great book to read for Presidents Day.
